Re: Black Moses has left the building (RIP)
No, I haven't but thanks for pointing them out.
PBS also showed WattStax, the '73 documentary by Mel Stuart, for one of the P.O.V. episodes. I have seen the original '73 film and it is really a great documentary on the concert that is known as the black woodstock.
It is so important to look past shaft and see all the great tunes he wrote with David Porter for Sam and Dave and other artists.
Soul Man; You don't Know Like I Know...
Plus the label had Booker T. & the M.G.'s as the studio band.

yes, I need to watch this stuff and soon...The GP Stax Record Story looks really good.
btw: For some reason I always liked his rendition of By the Time I Get To Phoenix
